Night patrol & turtle measuring

Leatherback conservationists measure a nesting leatherback sea turtle in Tambraw, West Papua. They, along with Deasy Lontoh and the rest of the team, are here to protect the leatherback turtle nesting area from predators and poachers alike. Critically endangered leatherbacks plays an important role in balancing the ocean ecosystem by eating jellyfish-- supporting a steady fish supply

Tambrauw, West Papua, falls within Indonesia’s Bird’s Head Seascape. To protect this astonishingly diverse repository of tropical marine life, USAID and the Government of Indonesia have teamed up with a wide range of partners (including the Walton Family Foundation, Conservation International, and Yayasan Kehati) to conserve the seascape through the Blue Abadi Fund.

Anggota tim patroli mengukur penyu belimbing yang sedang bertelur di Tambraw, Papua Barat. Bersama dengan Deasy Lontoh dan anggota tim lainnya, mereka melindungi sarang-sarang penyu belimbing dari pemangsa dan pemburu. Penyu belimbing yang terancam punah memainkan peran penting dalam menyeimbangkan ekosistem laut dengan memakan ubur-ubur-- mendukung pasokan ikan yang stabil.

Tambrauw, Papua Barat, terletak di Bentang Laut Kepala Burung Indonesia. Untuk melindungi kekayaan kehidupan laut tropis ini, USAID dan pemerintah Indonesia bekerja sama dengan berbagai pihak (termasuk Walton Family Foundation, Conservation International, dan Yayasan Kehati) untuk melestarikan kekayaan alam Bentang Laut Kepala Burung melalui Blue Abadi Fund.
